Wayne Newton Up Close and Personal, at Ballys, runs three nights per week at 8:00 p.m. Up Close and Personal is a loosely structured exercise in singing, musicianship, storytelling and what is expected to be lively banter with the audience. His favorite instruments, 13 including banjo, guitar and piano, will be spread out on the stage. - I can play them all, - Newton says, - ...and I will be ready to play any of them. - Enveloped in the format of the show is an opportunity for audience members to ask questions of Newton while he is onstage, and audience members can conjure up questions from any angle. Musically, there is to be no fixed set list, though Newton expects to take on Danke Schoen regularly. The show will consist of music and requests, lasting approximately 80 minutes.
